Recently started learning to develop in Android. Experience in C# make me want to implement Android with many great patterns in C# Application development.

I love your Evangelion clock, but I really want it in blue. I pulled the files out of the drawable folder and changed the images from orange to blue, but I couldn’t get the apk to install after that. I hope it was ok for me to try that. If it’s ok, can you make a blue clock or help me to get the one I edited to install? Thanks!!
I just found your website being in the search of a MVVM solution for Android. I am a well experienced WPF / Silverlight developer and I have to (and I want to) start learning how to develop on the google framework. Being a huge fan of MVVM, that’s how I ended up on your site. It seems that you did a great work, I have seen your tutorials and I am looking foward to use that kind of solution.
Before starting using your framework, I would like to ask you how far did you go ? How stable it is and how commited are you to the project ? I need to ask you that because as the project is “in progress” and still in a beta version (I guess), I don’t want to start using your libraries and discovering in 2 months that it is actually too week to use and that no update will be released because you gave up on the project. I know it might sound weird to ask you that but I really don’t want to jump into something if I don’t know how far I can go.
Again, for what I have seen, it looks terrific, keep doing good work !
I would keep updating the framework, and me myself looking forward to start implement something for honeycomb (well, after I have my first 3.0 slate).
Frankly, development reached a bottleneck, not technically but I didn’t received enough comments/usage report from users (you guys!) about the framework; being one-man-band, it’s hard for me to figure out the limitation on the framework, I keep developing something samples with the framework, but I can’t spot all the limitations without feedback. Alternatively, I’d happy to welcome anybody who interested in helping the development.
Talking about stability and progress, have you check out the MarkupDemo? It pretty shows most of how it can do in that, and source code is available too.
P.S. Next thing I would add is the support for custom views.
Yep I just spent 3 or 4 hours looking at your code, doing some tests and understanding all the concepts behind your framework. All I need is to be able to :
1) Bind properties
2) Bind commands
3) Use converters
It seems you do all of that (very impressive by the way), which is really encouraging. My problem in this case is that I am more than a beginner in Android and I am more than an expert in WPF. If I start using your framework, I am afraid that at the end, I’ll be just as novice as I am now because I didn’t learn Android like anybody else (because of using your libraries).
So I need your advice : can you let me know what you think ? Should I just try to bring my MVVM experience from .net with me and thanks to your work, learn to develop on the Android platform in a different way or should I force myself to stick with the classic way and say bye bye to MVVM regarding Android … for now ?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts,
NB: Just updated twitter with your website on http://www.lvlp.be 🙂
No matter what framework you using (well, even monoDroid), I think some basic knowledge on Android is still necessary. Android-Binding is here, to help ease of the life as dealing with the 90’s style of UI Programming. But, the following basic on Android is essential and no way to avoid:
1. Layout declaration (which is a shame that I don’t see any better tools on market than just hand code the xml)
1a. What those built in widgets are doing.
3. Activity/Service life cycle
Android-Binding is kind of a wrapper, and it works on the core system of Android’s View engine.
Hi there Andy!
thanks so much for the Evangelion Clock widget. I recently updated it and love the fact we can customise our own colors now, that’s awesome. I have a request for you and it’s a little weird because i’m not sure if it’s just me, but I’m having hard time with the contrast between the live numbers on the app and the non-live digital number parts. It’s lke there isn;t enough contrast between the two and I’ve havign a hard time reading it.
I changed the colors round a bunch to try and creat more contrast, but am not havign much luck and never had the problem with the older version. I’m not sure I’m explaining this very well so I’d like ot attach a screenshot, but am not sure how to…
